Magnolia-licious Blue and Brown Challenge

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!  I've made a gift bag for the Magnolia-licious Colour Challenge which is BLUE and BROWN. Can't wait to have you play along with us.  You could be the lucky winner of a $25 gift certificate to Diana's online store Magnolia-licious.

My project features mini Tilda with Wrapped Heart coloured with Copics on Make it Colour Blending Cardstock. BTW, did you know that Diana sells a mini doily die perfect for the minis Magnolias?  I've just ordered mine and can't wait for it to arrive.  I used My Mind's Eye DP called Pretty Please "Flower Drops".  Edges of image were sponged with chalk ink and the blue rhinestone swirl I got at Michaels.

Here's a side view of the gift bag.  It was so easy to put together using my Scor-Pal ~ absolute must-have for all crafters ~ and sticky tape.  The decorative edge on the top flap of the bag I created with the Magnolia Doohickey Tilda Lace Die.  The mini Magnolias are just the perfect size to embellish the bag and can be used for all sorts of occasions.

Here's a view of the bag with the top flap open.  Brown ribbon is from my stash.  Instructions for making this super easy and fun gift bag are HERE.

Well that's it for today.  I'm entering my project into the following challenges:

I appreciate you taking the time to stop by to visit.
